A new series to start the week. A track from the underlying reason behind this blog – Andrew Weatherall. Today, something from Bumble in 1992. Listed in discogs as progressive house, this is one of Weatherall’s stretched out mixes that owes as much to Dub as House. 12 minutes of bliss.

Bumble was Matt Early, who was later in Hardbag. This was one of only two releases under the Bumble name. n fact, “West In Motion” had two Weatherall mixes. A shorter, harder West In Motion (Andrew Weatherall Drum Mix), with Weatherall credited as remixer and Sabres of Paradise as producer, and the one featured here, West In Motion (Andrew Weatherall Mix).

The Haunted mix is pretty good too in a poppy kind of way – starting with the Sandy Denny sample at the start (which I think is the version that the drum & bass track sampled, but I forgot the name of that one).

  3. […] The Pogues. A Dave que desgraciadamente nos dejó en el 94, lo conocí a través de Mat y Adam, de Bumble,  grupo pionero de la escena electrónica de Irlanda, que habían trabajado con Andy Weatherall y […]
